General Horoscope for January 14, 2019
Yesterday’s temptations seem even more enticing today. We may be bored with the status quo and inspired to shake things up just for the sheer excitement of it all. But creating chaos won’t work in our favor while the willful Sun in conservative Capricorn tensely squares uncontainable Uranus. Fortunately, we can come to our senses before doing something we regret when the Moon enters pragmatic Capricorn at 2:42 pm EST and bumps into stern Saturn.
Aries Horoscope — March 21 to April 19
Spontaneity often serves you well, encouraging you to initiate action before you consider the consequences. Although you probably know better, you’re still inclined to take a risk today because it feels like you’re running out of time. However, making a decision while you are panicking is never a wise move. Changing your frame of reference can reduce your sense of urgency, all but guaranteeing smoother sailing ahead.
Taurus Horoscope — April 20 to May 20
You are extremely motivated to clarify your intentions for the future. Although you’re able to meet your obligations, you might feel as if you’re treading water rather than making real progress. Naturally, it makes more sense to focus on your immediate responsibilities when you lack a destination and a concrete plan to get there. But at some point soon you will need to choose between comfort and change.
Gemini Horoscope — May 21 to June 20
Your curiosity is operating on overdrive and it’s time to act on your recently acquired knowledge. Although you’ve been known to bury yourself under piles of data, your current ability to uncover the most useful information brings you exactly what you need to know. The research phase is coming to a close; instead of digging for more facts now, put the ones you already have to good use. President Theodore Roosevelt said, “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”
Cancer Horoscope — June 21 to July 22
Although relationships can be hard work, they offer you the emotional security you crave. However, you worry about living up to the expectations of your partner or friend. It’s frustrating when you are doing your best and it’s still not enough. You might reach a point today when you realize something needs to change, but losing your temper is not the answer. Running away doesn’t solve anything either. The solution requires honest communication without blaming anyone for your feelings. Bob Marley said, “Being vulnerable is the only way to allow your heart to feel true pleasure.”
Leo Horoscope — July 23 to Aug. 22
The pressure to make changes in your daily routine continues to rise and fall like waves washing up on the beach. However, the feeling of dissatisfaction doesn’t go away today, even when the tension eases. Although direct action may be required now, it’s much wiser to execute a well-thought-out plan rather than reacting when the stress is at its height. Instead of walking on eggshells, use a broom to clear your environment. Comic artist Mort Walker wrote, “Laughter is the brush that sweeps away the cobwebs of your heart.”
Virgo Horoscope — Aug. 23 to Sept. 22
Expressing yourself creatively connects your inner feelings with your outer world. However, you may choose to tone down your message today, so you won’t provoke negative reactions from those you want to reach. However spontaneous or playful you might appear to others now, your actions will likely be well-planned and fully under your control. Nevertheless, you still could say or do things in the moment that you will later regret. A cool-headed approach is the best way to put your current intensity to work.
Libra Horoscope — Sept. 23 to Oct. 22
You’re being pushed to the edge of your comfort zone today, yet you might not want others to know. Someone’s unpredictable behavior may be turning your life upside down and you believe that self-restraint on your part can flip a potential upset into a victory. Nevertheless, calculated risks will likely pay off now, as long as you are willing to trust the process and maintain a flexible attitude. Adventure starts where plans end.
Scorpio Horoscope — Oct. 23 to Nov. 21
The atmosphere is buzzing with noise today, making it difficult to discern what’s important from trivial matters. You may simultaneously feel attraction and repulsion that can tear you in half or, in a brilliant flash of awareness, reveal a brilliant solution to your current dilemma. However, you could sacrifice personal freedom if you openly express your affections to someone. Nevertheless, there is little time for self-doubt. Ultimately, you’ll feel less isolated if your close friends know the longings of your heart.
Sagittarius Horoscope — Nov. 22 to Dec. 21
Your nerves are all fired up, but you can’t put your finger on the cause of your jumpiness. You wish you could settle down today, but it feels as if the cosmos has other plans for you. You’re ready to burst at the seams, yet a deep sense of purpose prevents you from losing your temper needlessly. Nevertheless, pent-up feelings could explode if you feel too constrained. Step back and calm down before confronting the source of your agitation. Channel your passion into something constructive or prepare for the consequences.
Capricorn Horoscope — Dec. 22 to Jan. 19
Although your life seems to be on a path to stabilization these days, you’re feeling restless and ready for major movement today. You want to reap the benefits of your previous work but are reluctant to accept the restrictions that come along with making a commitment. Irrepressible feelings incite unexpected shifts in your dreams. Fortunately, there is more room for compromise than you think now, so consider your words carefully before unformed thoughts pop out of your mouth. Spontaneity can be delightful, as long as you respond gracefully to any surprises you encounter along the way.
Aquarius Horoscope — Jan. 20 to Feb. 18
Your dreams are larger than life and there is little you can do to ignore them today. Your imagination is vivid, and your thoughts are loud. You are happily aware that your positive attitude shapes your future. However, this over-the-top energy might do more harm than good if left unmanaged. Be careful not to take on more than you can handle. Moderate your enthusiasm by consciously limiting your tendency to say yes. Steve Jobs said, “It’s only by saying no that you can concentrate on the things that are really important.”
Pisces Horoscope — Feb. 19 to March 20
What you see is only part of what you get today. There’s a lot going on and you can prevent emotional indigestion by biting off a little bit at a time. However, you have mixed feelings about your involvement with others now. You want to be included in activities with your friends, but accommodating their needs is difficult when you’re feeling more independent. Don’t settle for less than you think you deserve, since you have the spunk now to fight back against anyone who tries to control you. Doreen Virtue wrote, “Boundaries are part of self-care. They are healthy, normal and necessary.”
